How could I forget...
A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas

 

My favorite part of this book was when Rhysand explained to Feyra everything he went through, felt, and did from the time he met her until she came to his court to escape Tamlin's control. Heartbreaking, emotional, powerful, and worth every page it took to get there and more...

Court of Mist & Fury - Audiobook
A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas,Jennifer Ikeda

Audience - Young Adult

 

Maybe I'd always been broken and dark inside.

- first sentence

 

Feyre is now High Fae, but she still has her human heart and she cannot forget all she did to save Tamlin and his court. She is depressed, but Tamlin is too busy trying to protect and save her to notice. She still has the deal with Rhysand, new powers that she doesn't understand, and Prythian is still in danger.

 

I loved this book for so many reasons. Mass takes us on an emotional journey as Feyre learns to control and develop her powers and to respect herself and understand what she needs to be happy. She leaves a controlling relationship for herself, not for another guy.  She is an amazing character and so strong.

 

Again Mass makes us love the characters, despite or maybe because of their flaws. So many characters turned out to be different than I expected. The story is emotional, sexy, serious, sad sometimes and funny at others. I loved Rhys's team and the way he respects and loves them. I loved Feyre's strength and her gradual acceptance that she is worthwhile and deserving of happiness.

 

And then, the end. WOW - what a twist. I was so angry along with Feyre and so sad at what happened. And then after that crazy, unfortunate twist, Feyre made a decision that broke my heart...

 

And I'm immediately on to the next book. 

 

P.S. This book was 23 hours, the next is 25 hours.

Court of Thorns & Roses - audio
A Court of Thorns and Roses - Sarah J. Maas,Jennifer Ikeda

 

The forest had become a labrynith of snow and ice.

- first sentence

 

Feyre is a nineteen-year-old girl who supports her family by hunting. When she kills a wolf, she violates a centuries-old treaty. As punishment, she must live with Tamlin, a powerful, immortal faerie in the land of Prythian. Feyre goes from hating Tamlin to falling in love with him, but there is a darkness over the land and Feyre may be their only hope.

 

This is a robust story with unexpected twists and turns. Feyre taught herself how to hunt in order to keep her family alive. She is a powerful girl and definitely not a typical fairy tale heroine - who needs a strong male to save her. I loved Feyre, Tamlin, Lucien, and even Rhys and I hated Amarantha and her evil court. I loved the derisive tone the narrator gave to Feyre's thoughts about certain characters and the emotion she infused into the story.

 

The end of this book was fabulous and I immediately started listening to book 2 (thank goodness for audible credits). The narrator did an excellent job, and I hope she continues with the next two books.

Queen of Shadows - Sarah J. Maas

Amazing! Literally kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through! Though I don't like where this series has gone, I was very entertained by this one.

Throne of Glass - Sarah J Maas

Throne of Glass has to be my favourite one in the Throne of Glass series. I think it's because it's the one that doesn't require much brain power. I loved the plot, the characters of this wonderful world of Sarah J Maas. I wish I could reread this series with new eyes.
